Tennis: Rublev disqualified for yelling at a referee during his semi-final in Dubai

Russian Andrey Rublev, world No. 5, was disqualified on Friday in the semi-final of the ATP 500 tournament in Dubai, against Kazakh Alexander Bublik (23rd) for yelling at a linesman.

Rublev and Bublik were neck and neck in the third and final set 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/5), 6-5 when the Russian, seeded N.2, attacked verbally to a linesman, according to television images, without us being able to hear his words.

The referee in question claimed that the player had insulted him in Russian. Rublev assured that he spoke in English and did not use foul language. The referee maintained his version and the world number five was disqualified after intervention by the ATP supervisor. Bublik, seeded No.7, will meet in the final the winner of the match between Russian Daniil Medvedev, world No.4, and Frenchman Ugo Humbert (18th).
